Coffee Grinders Jumpstart Your Java

All the experts agree. People who want the best flavor in their coffee use coffee grinders. Coffee grinders work so well because they unleash the bean oils and aromas right before you make a pot. It's like opening a fresh can of ground coffee each and every time you make some "joe".

Of course, besides coffee grinders, there's also some technique that goes into making a good pot of pick me up. This holds true for both the way your put your coffee in your coffee maker, the kind of coffee maker you have, and the type of water you use.

First, coffee gurus recommend adding two heaping tablespoons of whole beans to the grinder for every six ounces of water you plan to use. To be exact, you probably should measure out your water before you add it to the coffee maker if you are using a drip coffee maker.

What type of maker should I use with coffee grinders?

As for the type of coffee maker to go with coffee grinders, experts say here that a press pot or a machine with a gold cone, or other permanent filter, is best. Picky coffee drinkers do not use paper filters. They have an aftertaste and absorb the special aromatic oils from the coffee beans that are essential for superb taste. If you must use paper filters, try rinsing them with hot water beforehand to wash out the aftertaste.

It is also important to know how long to let your coffee brew. After using coffee grinders, the ground coffee is very delicate. If water contacts it for too long, for instance, your coffee can end with an overly bitter coffee. On the other hand, if water doesn't contact the coffee grounds for long enough, your coffee may lack its full flavor.

You don't want to keep your coffee sitting on a burner or hotplate too long either after it's been through coffee grinders and then brewed. More than 20 minutes after the brewing is done is dangerous because the taste will start to become bitter.

And don't think of reheating your coffee. Talk about rough on your stomach! Follow these tips, though, and you'll have a stomach, and taste buds, as well as good cups of coffee every time.
